Reader Mode is my favourite browser superpower.

Reader Mode: The Button to Beat

Tapping this button transports me to a land free of newsletter signup modals, surveys, pop-ups, pop-unders, flashing ad banners, automatically-playing video, app install prompts, breaking news alerts, passive-aggressive interstitials, and faux notification permission banners. It slices through the undesirable and unnecessary with ease; the Alexander the Great to the Gordian Knot that is poor user interface design.

No surprise that this is built-in to Safari, Firefox and Edge, but not Chrome.

And sites that don’t support Reader Mode tend not to get many visits from me.

Just saying…
